We booked this based on trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. the duck was delicious as was the lamb. Portions are very large. Nothing too ptissy, just great food at a reasonable price.The husband and wife team are very friendly and made us feel right at home. We plan on dining here again next year when we return to Nice. Be advised though the restaurant is very small. Make a reservation, you don't want to miss this one.

Visited this restaurant twice in four days due to the first visit being so impressive. The food was excellent on both occasions. The owners were extremely attentive and friendly but at the same time very professional . We tried a number of the dishes ( we were with two friends) and we agreed that all of them were brilliant. This restaurant is away from the centre of Nice, but for the sake of a short cab ride,is well worth the effort.If we visit Nice in the future we wouldn't hesitate to return.

We have been coming to Nice for over 25 years, at least twice a year and this restaurant has been a golden find. We are just back after 10 days, eating at the restaurant twice (only because we ran out of time) I personally had the best carbonara ever! Lamb, duck and steak also excellent as our friends also confirmed.
Fantastic chef (and of course commis chef) and the chef's wife was so very lovely, charming, friendly - all in all - one of the best dining experiences for a long time and can't wait to return. Am writing to Raymond Blanc to see if he could visit - should have Michellin stars!!!!!

We visited this restaurant three times during our five night stay in Nice. Why would you look for anything else once you found such a perfect place?
We tried a variety of dishes and they were all incredibly good. The salmon with saffron sauce was OUTSTANDING, lamb and duck were terrific as well. The portions are very generous and inexpensive considering the high quality of the food.

As other reviewers pointed out the atmosphere is warm, friendly and homely, you are treated as a valued guest. Both Fred (chef) and his wife Olesya have good English and are eager to answer any questions.
Fred loves cooking and you can feel it in his dishes. They are both passionate and proud of their place - deservingly so.
Thank you so much for the great service, we will definitely remember it as one of the highlights of our trip. Would highly recommend.

My husband and I went there for dinner tonight and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We shared the mozzarella/tomato salad (it was big and delicious) and I ordered the duck and it was the best duck I have ever had! Soooo good! The area was so so, we didn't know what to think when we walked there but I'm glad we did.
